We often debate Donna's vocal skills or the guys in the band ability to sing,here is someone who no doubt has beautiful voice and can sing like few before or after her.

Sarah is wonderful. I have to admit I fell in love with her as well. That clip is great.

Hey this is quite wonderful. But I prefer the version by Israel Kamakawiwaole - another great American (Hawaiian) voice. Just seems more in tune with the lyrical sentiment to me.

now those are some pipes!!! if i listen to the dead too much i sometimes forget what great vocals sound like.

ironically, i happened to be listening to some of my favorite donna vocals ever while i came across this post. she sounds downright sexy:

In all honesty I very rarely find her vocals even tolerable,she was somewhat less offensive in her stint with the JGB,but for the most part I think any song would be better served by her absence.I'm not talking about the horror of Playin',Scarlet or Greatest Story,just her inability to sing along in key,on time in her role as a back up singer,she might be fine for a line or a verse,but inevitably she would hit a sour note or be out of time.I find her performance on this version of High Time to be her shining moment.

Sarah Vaughan is an American treasure as was Aretha, Billie, Ella, Judy and Dinah Washington.

BTW; Excellent Help On The Way >
